Upcoming Paint Out

I’m so excited by this upcoming Paint Out! The Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens is truly a gem in the area. It is not only one of my favorite places to go, but also one of many of our local artists favorite places to paint. If you are not already a supporter of this great place, you should be. I have literally hundreds of photos from there that are on my list of “Things to Paint”. It is an extraordinary environment. What am I saying!? There are many environments to choose from there. So so varied in their light, plants, and atmosphere.
